Change Your PATH, Not Your PURPOSE

destination-1285851_960_720.png

Many people start their journey in an enthusiastic manner,  but in the midway, they lose hope and stop the journey or initiate a fresh one. Many people prefer to change their goal if they are not progressing or achieving any result. And it is completely fine to change your goal time to time.  But, if you continue doing this for most of your life’s goals, then you will end up doing nothing. You will live a life of problems, complaints, excuses and you will easily blame others or your surroundings for your failure.

So, how to deal with problems in your journey?

Is there a way we can handle it?  There can be many solutions. But let us try the most simple one.

Instead of changing your purpose,  try to change the path you have taken. There can be better or easier way to achieve your goal. You may not aware of it. The tough or difficult route may not help you to move ahead. Then why not try any safe and simple route to the same destination. Try to talk to the experts and take help from them if possible. Else you can try the routes you know, but you have not yet tried. Don’t hurry up to give up your Purpose.

Let us consider one example to understand it. We all aware of the fact that how horrible it is to get a bad traffic during the pick hours of the day. It will test your patience, tolerance,  and humanity. And if it continues for few days or months, you will definitely lose your control and can say harsh words to the people coming in your way. In this case, you cannot change your goal that is to reach office. So, either you can change the path or resources. You can take any other route with comparatively less traffic or change your timing for office. You also can think of hiring a cab and can move in the same path during the usual timing. It will now be the driver’s work to handle the traffic and drive you to the office. You can use those traffic time to do some of your works, checking emails, listening to music, thinking of any work strategy. In this way, you will reach the office with a happy and peaceful mind which will help you to achieve your next purpose in a better manner.

Now let us consider you are working on some tough projects and you do not really know how and where to head next. Then what should you do?  Do you want to talk to your manager and ask him to assign your work to someone more capable than you or you can try to check out online forums or your colleagues for help? Though it is easier to give up, it needs more patience to deal with the same problem for a longer duration.

So,  try to utilize new resources or new paths and solve your problem and move ahead in the journey towards your dream. Do not be so hurry to give up.

Choosing the best Javascript framework for Your Project

 

javascript-2189147_960_720.png

Javascript is the most widely used programming language to create amazing web and mobile applications. Previously it has been registered as a client-side programming language, but these days it can be used for both front end and back end programming. It is continuously adding new features and emerging in the form of a variety of frameworks. So, when you are going to start a new project, how you can evaluate which one is the most suitable one for your project. So, let us outline the features of commonly used javascript frameworks to finalize the best one for you.

1.AngularJS:

AngularJs is hottest javascript frameworks which can be best used in SPA(Single Page Application) projects. It is easy to learn and very powerful to create complex web and mobile applications. AngularJS is open source, completely free. It is licensed under the Apache license version 2.0.The first version or Angular 1.0 was released in the year 2009 and Angular 2.0 was released in 2016 and the current version is 4.0. The major changes in the new version are the usage of TypeScript instead of Javascript where Typescript is the superset of javascript. The file size has been reduced to 60% in Angular 4.0 which will accelerate the application development.It is also SEO friendly and it works on the component-based model.The concept of controller used in Angular 1.0 has been eliminated in this new version.It will help the developers to divide the application into different components with desired features.

2.Node.js:

Node.js is an open-source, cross-platform JavaScript run-time environment which allows server-side programming. It is a platform built on Chrome’s JavaScript runtime.It runs single-threaded, non-blocking, asynchronous which is very memory efficient.Node.js is very lightweight and efficient.It is free to use and developed under MIT license.It can be used to create high performance, highly scalable, long polling or comet-based applications.

3.EXT JS:

It can be used to build data-intensive, cross-platform web applications.By using a single codebase, developers can write an application for desktop, tablet, or smartphone devices. Sencha provides IDE plugins, cmd and inspector tools speed up the application development. ExtJS 2.0 released in the year 2007 and the current version is 6.0 and it is available under Sencha’s commercial and GPL license. It can be considered as one of the best options for ERP projects and administrative tasks.

4.React.js:

React.JS is well known javascript library developed by a developer at Facebook. It creates interactive and reusable UI components which can make the development faster. It is simple and easy to learn with minimal knowledge of HTML and CSS. React uses JSX(addition of HTML inside Javascript) in its code, but one can avoid JSX and can write the code in plain javascript.But JSX is easier to use. It has a code reusability feature which means one can write the code only once to create Android, IOS, and Web Application. Performance of applications created in react is much better or faster due to the logic of virtual DOM which means there is no need to render the whole page rather only the components which have been changed needs to be rendered.

5.Ember.js:

Ember.js is an open source javascript framework.It is based on MVVM (Model-View-ViewModel) pattern where HTML and CSS are its core development model. It can be used to create desktop, mobile and web applications. It increases rendering speed with a new binding syntax using HTMLBars(superset of HandleBar) template engine.the applications that contain complex UI’s can easily be customized by Ember.js.

6.Meteor.js:

Meteor.js can be used in the situation where one wants to develop a reactive application within a short time frame. It is an excellent choice where the application updates information within the UI without hitting refresh. One can write one code base to build the application for IOS, Android, and web. The only drawback is, it does not support SQL and can integrate only with MongoDB.It is best for messaging applications.

7.Mithril.js:

Mithril.js is another Javascript framework for building Single Page Applications.It is more or less similar to React as both of them uses virtual DOM, javascript as a flow of control and based on the component-based model. Since Mithril has built-in modules for routing and XHR, it is smaller in size whereas React based applications rely on third-party libraries to fulfill many common features.So, Mithril eases the headache of onboarding and good for the teams who want consistency.

8.Vue.js:

Vue is an open source progressive javascript framework. It is lightweight with virtual DOM and two-way data binding. It combines many features of Angular, React, and Ember. It can be easily integrated into the projects which use other javascript libraries as Vue is designed in such a way that it can be incrementally adoptable.It provides optimized re-rendering of components and best suitable for the application where performance is the main concern.
9.Polymer.js

Polymer.js is an open-source JavaScript library developed by Google developers. It allows creating custom elements easily using the HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. It provides both one-way and two-way data binding. It can be used in building the hybrid mobile application, big single page applications with many different widgets/components which should support shadow DOM.
So, instead of looking for the number of features and advantages provided by any javascript framework, one should consider how these features can be utilized in your project. Hence choose one of these above JS frameworks wisely to save time and money.

Successful Together

nature-3166345_960_720

Everyone wants to be successful and popular in their field. It does not matter what and how long they have been working for. We all want excellence in our life and career with utmost ease.There are few principles to become a better individual which includes purpose, practice, persistence, punctual and hard work. Once you become a better person by holding these beautiful characteristics, you can see success is not far from you. Most often we noticed people reach and sometimes even walk alone on their journey towards success. Will not it be beautiful to be successful together with a group of people or with our society? Is it possible? If yes, then how?

We can observe the small honey bee which teaches us many things to initiate our journey towards success. Let us outline few characteristics of a honey bee which can help us to be more productive and popular in our life.

1. Concentrate on your Skills

stickies-3127287_960_720.jpg

A honey bee always looks for nectar inside the flower. It does not care about the thorns associated with the flower and also the dead leaves present in the same plant. It moves from flower to flower and concentrates only on the nectar which comes under its area of interest. So, if we human beings can also incorporate the same thing in our life by concentrating only on our work, then we can complete the task in hand in a faster,  better, and smarter way. And at the same time, we should ignore the negatives in our surroundings which either we cannot control or change.

2. Hard Work

teamwork-649498_960_720.jpg

Honey bees are perfect examples of hard work. Mostly the worker honey bee is very laborious as compared to other categories of the insect family. They do their work so efficiently because they acknowledge their roles and responsibilities and take it forward. Similarly, we can also work hard in the direction where we can grow and enhance our skills rather than wasting our energy on those areas which will add no value to our life and career. So, hard work in the correct direction is necessary which can only be done after understanding and acknowledging our responsibilities.

3. Invest Time for your Family

Apart from collecting the nectar from the flower, the bees also invest their energy in building honeycomb, cleaning and organizing the same and also serving the society. So, we should also consider our household works as a necessity to live and lead a healthy and beautiful life. It is our family who will be there with us until the end of our life. So, do invest a good amount of time for your close ones.

4. Be Social

group-312408_960_720.png

Honey bees live in colonies as they are very social.They divide the tasks among them and concentrate on their work which leads to the welfare of their society. So, instead of becoming or creating problems for others, we should work together. In this way, we can share a beautiful and strong bond among us which will help us to avail the benefits of a better society.

5. Help others

hands-2715976_960_720

Honey bees help each other as per their ability. They consider it as their job to help those who are in need. How beautiful will be a society where people will think to help others even before they have asked for. Try to create a chain of helping people which will not only uplift your own soul, but also will create an aura of friendship, happiness, and confidence.

So, let us take an oath to become a professional honey bee which will help us to be successful; not alone, but together with our society. Let us start a new journey together by holding hands till we taste the flavor of success. Let us help others in their journey as per our ability.  Let us mold our society into the sweetest honeycomb inside which people crave to reside.

Intelligence and Creativity

The concept and definition of intelligence and creativity are very much close to each other which may confuse people to visualize the thin line of separation between them.Where we can say the brain is the mother of these two smart and complicated kids, we still need a variety of examples to unfold the true nature of both these beautiful concepts which make anyone successful.

 

Intelligence is nothing but the action to take a quick decision retrieved from the readily available concepts from your memory. So, one can be intelligent with due course of time, though there are exceptions as well.A person can be intelligent in those areas of his life where he spends most of his time and energy.

 
Creativity, on the other hand, is a process to think beyond the reality and it will be an added bonus if your creativity has some usability as well.

 
So, intelligence and creativity may not necessarily belong to the same individual and most of the time these dwell in different people.Best analytical or problem-solving skills are the obvious nature of intelligent people as they get the response from their brain for that particular type of problem within few seconds which is there in their memory.But, creative people will take more time to solve the same problem.

 
It is easier to be intelligent by spending more time in the field where one wants to gain expertise, but it is way difficult to be creative.So, how to become creative? Is there any technique or steps to follow to be more creative? Let us check it out.

 

1. Receptiveness
The one and only truth is, all of us are creative by nature because we are one and the same who created this beautiful world. Sounds crazy? Maybe, but it is true and few enlightened souls have realized this unique reality. We may not have realized it, but we can look back into our memory and feel the creator inside us. So, let us have a quick revisit to our childhood days or if you have any kid around you, then observe him peacefully.When you look at a kid, then you can see how his thought and imagination has no bound.For example, he can use his pen and make it fly like an airplane.At times he uses the same pen as a spoon, sometimes as a broom and many other creative things he can do with a simple pen. And one of the best thing about the kid is, he is happy with all the available resources and use them to their fullest. Now imagine, if a pen is available to you, then can you use it for anything else other than writing? Obviously NO.And the reason is quite simple as it is there in our memory, that the pen is used for writing and we are intelligent enough to retrieve this information from our memory and make the exact usage as fed in our system. So, we are intelligent, but losing the charm of creativity inside us.Do you ever wonder why kids are so creative? It is because kids are more receptive to the things happening around them whereas adults prefer to go with selective listening. So, to be creative, you have to be more receptive and accept all the things coming in your way.

 
2. Mutation
Mutation is nothing but the change which is highly essential to be creative. If you observe properly, then you can get to know the changes occurring in your body with respect to time. Every day many new cells are generated and old cells get removed from our body. Our body constantly reminds “Change is the only constant in this Universe.” So, let us apply a slight change in our personal life, job, hobby and in our surrounding. We can start it by simply changing our food, clothes, people we met, books we read and so on. If you have any hobby, then try to introduce slight change into it. After few days, one can feel the power of mutation and the after effect these changes is the glimpse of the lost creator inside you.

 
3. The intersection of skills
Creativity reduces with due course of time if you are passionate and working in the same field for many years whereas you will be an expert and the most intelligent person in that field.To achieve intelligence in any specific field, it is easier as you have to focus on that stream with all your energy, but to be creative, you have to indulge yourself in multiple things.The author of the book “Medici Effect” have cited many examples to prove that creativity comes by an intersection of skills. So, one has to work, read, listen and basically open to all the possibilities coming in his way to being creative. If you go back and analyze the life of people who did any invention, then you will find they pursue a completely different hobby as compared to their invention. Many people can say that the hobby has nothing to do with the invention, but it has hidden effect which unlocks the area of possibilities. The famous scientist Albert Einstein loves to play the violin which may be unknown to many of us. Similarly, there are many physicists, painters, entrepreneurs, actors who posses altogether a different hobby apart from their profession.So, Let us think and go beyond the boundary of our profession and try different hobbies. It will help us to become more creative and at the same time, we will gain intelligence in this new field.

 

4. Express without Hesitation
Most people wait for permission from the higher authority to tackle any new situation. But, there are people who solve the problem at hand by using their knowledge and existing resources and then ask for forgiveness for the newly used way. These people create history later on and they can be considered as creative in their own way. So, why all of us cannot think out of box. It is because we hesitate a lot to express our feeling whereas creative people hardly waste a second to express their feelings in their work, talk, and behavior. So, follow your heart and act wisely.

 

5. Resourcefulness
Creative people always concentrate on their strengths and use all the available resources to its fullest.But, those who always think about the obstacles cannot grow in their career and they can easily find reasons for their failures. So, try to be creative and make a new usage of existing resources to be more productive and successful. Consider every obstacle as a new opportunity and challenge your creativity to handle the tough situation.

 

6. Be Happy
Last but not the least is to be happy is the secret to achieve any higher goal.This is the simplest and easiest way to improve the creativity level.So, invest your time into the things which give you happiness and peace. It will boost your energy level and you feel refreshed to think beyond your limit.

 
So, go ahead and try these simple steps to visualize and realize the creator inside you.Look at life with these new eyes and unlock your hidden potential to achieve the highest form of success, happiness, and peace.

New Age Moms

 

model-2614569_960_720.jpg

The most beautiful expression of love can be visualized by observing a mother with her kid. Her affection towards her baby is incomparable and nobody can quantify it.Rightly said by Miss world 2017, Manushi Chhillar that motherhood should be the highest paid job and she gave all the credit to her mother and her sacrifice towards her. But, men in our society come up with an extremely vague argument that the next generation kids will give their credit of success not only to their mothers but as to the maids, grandparents, relatives, neighbors and so on. And they say new age moms feel their kids as some kind of burden and always ready to hand over their kids or kid’s task to anybody to become equal with the men in the society. Earlier days, mothers are so caring, they sacrifice their whole life to take care of the kid and their family without any expectation and still, they are happy and peaceful.But, new age moms are going out in the name of the career and equality at the cost of their kid’s health and future. The current education system is creating slaves who run after money for the sake of their family. Taking care of family seems to be boring, following the family rituals become irritating, observing kid’s growth and being part of it becomes an obstacle in the career for new age moms.And there is a never-ending list of complaints from the so-called breadwinner of the family. The word “New age Mom” is a sarcastic comment on the moms of this generation.

Isn’t it strange? Things have been taken in a such a negative way.  People talk a lot about gender diversity, equality,  women empowerment, praise another woman who is successful, joins the slogan to save the girl child, etc, but the same person forgets to appreciate and respect the women in his house.

Forget about the men in our society, many women hesitate to appreciate other women in their family, neighborhood, and office.It is one of the biggest ironies of our society. Many women do not think before ruining the self-esteem of another woman.We talk about women empowerment and it mostly deals with changing men’s attitude and behavior towards women, but what about a woman dragging another woman back.

Just to reply the people who compare and mocks at the career-oriented women in their house, I can say,”New age moms are much more capable than their previous generation as they are equipped with education, knowledge, strength, focus, passion, and last but not the least, they are caring. We really cannot and should not compare any individual with other as we all are unique in our own way. So, do not waste your valuable time with these unnecessary discussions.”

Charity begins at home. So, all women should hold hands together and start respecting another woman you see, talk, listen. Try to appreciate the efforts and sacrifice put by every individual in your life. Don’t judge the work on the basis of gender,  don’t think the work is small or big, don’t wait any specific day to appreciate. Do appreciate whenever you meet them. It will bring a ray of happiness to them which will uplift your soul as well. Respect a woman simply because she is a woman,  she is living,  she brings life and makes the environment lively.

 

The Caterpillar Theory

butterfly.jpg

Normally Caterpillar is nothing but the larva of a butterfly or moth. It has a segmented body resembling a worm with three pairs of true legs and several pairs of leg-like appendages. It is considered as a voracious feeder.It mostly eats leaves and grows very quickly.

Caterpillars spend their whole life by searching for and consuming food.But, they are different than other worms because they have the capability to fulfill their desire for food completely. And when they reach the saturation point, they begin wandering in the quest for a suitable pupation site, often the underside of a leaf. There it spins a button of silk which it uses to fasten its body to the surface. Some caterpillars create a cocoon to protect the pupa whereas some species go with the naked pupa. Then the transformation happens within few weeks and the caterpillar will turn into a colorful butterfly.

It is one of the strangest transformation and a lot to learn from this interesting process. So, let us learn and understand this caterpillar theory and start applying it in our lives.

  • No other worm can ever imagine the life of a butterfly except caterpillar. It is because caterpillar goes beyond its sense desires. Similarly, human beings should try to go beyond their sense desires and can transform their lives as well. Then only they can experience the beautiful creation and the reason for their existence.
  • Caterpillar needs to crack the cocoon to become a butterfly and those who cannot crack, they die inside the cocoon. So, human beings also need to be careful and strong enough to break all the worldly bondages like the caterpillar, otherwise, they will also die without knowing the absolute truth.
  • The food habits and behavior of the butterfly are quite different as compared to the caterpillar. In the same way, the behavior of a realized person is much more different and better than a normal human being. Satwa is the predominant quality of the person in the spiritual journey.
  • A butterfly is the most welcoming and pleasing insect whereas people use to avoid caterpillars. Likewise, people listen and respect those who have the knowledge about the supreme reality. Everybody wants to untangle the truth about their existence and the very source from where they come. So, the realized souls are always welcomed by the knowledge seekers.
  • Though caterpillars have 12 eyes, they have a very poor eyesight. They can only differentiate between light and dark and they hardly perceive any color and most of the time they navigate blindly. Whereas butterflies have a better and larger visual field. They can easily detect fast moving objects and they are capable of distinguishing ultraviolet and polarized light. Butterflies have 15 different cones to have a color vision whereas human beings have only 3. Isn’t it strange? So, the person who has started the journey to enquire his inner self has a sharper vision as compared to others.
  • Caterpillars have only one job that is “TO EAT”. And they even eat their eggshells from where they come from. Butterflies are not very much specific about their food sources as the caterpillars do. They usually eat/drink nectar from plants. Same is the case for the transformed person. He hardly bothers about the food and its taste.
  • Caterpillars eat too much because they have to store the nutrition which is needed during the pupation stage. So, every individual should traverse the path of worldly desires which is quite essential to have a fair knowledge about the creation and then he can able to differentiate and understand the spiritual journey in a better manner.

So, let us apply this caterpillar theory in our lives as well and try to think and move beyond the sense desires. Let us put the first tiny step towards a transformed and advanced life which will bring wisdom, peace, happiness, and success.
